This fine-but-pricey restaurant at Gallows Point Suite Resort took the place of ZoZo's, which has moved to Caneel Bay. The layout is the same with a bar above the restaurant. Our food was outstanding, as was the service. We visited three times during out five-day stay at Gallows Point (highly recommended, the best place to stay on St. John). We sat at the bar and watched the sunset. When we returned another evening we were told there were no seats at the bar but we could sit in the "lounge" adjacent to the bar. Four chairs at the bar had "reserved" signs but no one there. After awhile waiting to order a drink in the lounge we just left. Reservations highly advised.

We have been here many times when it was Zozo's and came back to try it for our anniversary dinner. We sat at the bar, b/c that's where the best views are. The bartender seemed new and didn't give great service. For example, the people next to us asked for a particular bottle of white wine and he presented the same type but not the same brand. When they questioned him about it, he just said they didn't have the other. The concern we had was that we ordered an appetizer and it came with calamari as the garnish (not disclosed on the menu, not disclosed when the plate was served). Since we didn't want any other "surprise", I specifically asked if there are any "surprises" in the lobster risotto - and was answered "no" by the bartender. Well, it came and it had a mussel and clam on it. The food was ok, but not great - I felt overcharged $42 for the Lobster Risotto - I'm not even positive the meat was lobster, but I guess it probably was.

This restaurant is where Zozos used to be, and I have to say, Ocean 362 is far and away better than Zozos! The menu leans toward Indian style dishes, but the flavors are subtly spicy without ever being overwhelming. The Garlic Marsala shrimp was fantastic with the yuca mash, and if the Branzino is on the menu, definitely get it! (The chef prepares it himself.) The tirimisu is better than some I've had in Little Italy in NYC. And absolutely try the Jimmy Hendrix cocktail (chai tea with gin and mint.) I almost hesitated writing a review because I wanted to keep this gem a secret, but it is just too amazing to keep to myself! Really, it's NYC's fine dining on St. John.

We went to Ocean 362 during a weekend vacation to the Virgin Islands and couldn't have been happier with our choice. We ate at about 6:30, which was the perfect time to watch the sunset over St. Thomas (great view). Our waiter, Nancy, was attentive and very friendly. They bring out bread to start you off with some great butter infused with crushed pepper. For our main meal, we had sashimi tuna and whole branzino, both of which were fantastic and cooked perfectly. For dessert, we had a flourless chocolate cake, which was to die for. We will definitely be coming back here when we visit St. John again!

So glad we tried Ocean 362 for dinner during our recent stay on St. John. The service was friendly and efficient, and Nancy our server did a fine job. The food was really outstanding, and as good as any we have had at a number of our favorite restaurants on St. John. The Chef has done a great job with adding some different takes on various dishes. All four of us really enjoyed our meal, and the evening, and will definitely come back. The venue is great, as they occupy the sight previously occupied by Zozo's. This is a new place that we hope will attract a loyal following as they continue to refine things.
